Bother, I was referring to his comic pictures. My bad.
Well, I guess that does mean some of the Hagah could have a non-metallic secondary without messing things up too much. Fair enough, I’ve been persuaded (though I’m still not convinced it would actually look better in practice that way).
Entirely fair, but who is to say that “Pinkium” isn’t the most valuable metal in the Bionicle universe?
(In all seriousness, there’s a point to be made here. All metals in the MU are forms of protodermis, anyway.)
While I agree Kualus shouldn’t be silver or gold, Gaaki shouldn’t be metallic blue or gold, and the like, that is ultimately just an opinion and there’s really no reason they couldn’t coincidentally have those colors.
Theres also the issue that ALL of the Rahaga have a secondary color of orange in their torso that is neither present on Toa Iruini or Norik. My thoughts on this was that the secondary colors were not translated into the rahaga forms.
silver is such an ordinary color in the MU that metru nui matoran paint the tops of their masks silver to denote that they’re powerless.
Norik’s armor is made out of a special type of silver-colored metal that appears the same in set form. You’d probably represent aluminum and platinum with the same color in set form, but that doesn’t mean those metals are equal in rarity. Therefore we can’t assume the rarity of the armor materials based solely on what Lego color is used.
But seriously, do you suppose that a preliminary voting of color schemes is something that could be enforced by the moderators or at least vote on? Or should we spend more time discussing it to get a better feel
